The color is pale straw with attractive green hues. The nose shows lifted pear and tropical fruit characters, typical of the Geyser Peak style. These are complemented by subtle nuances of toasted barrel, buttery malolactic and vanillin characters. The palate shows more of the classic melon and pear fruits with nicely balanced oak and a touch of crispness. A well integrated, complex wine with a soft, creamy texture and long finish.
Pairs well with lemon and rosemary chicken, seared halibut, Fettuccine Alfredo, and softer cheeses like Brie or Camembert.
